Architecture + Film
Once again, WAF is proud to partner with Architecture Film Festival London to present a selection of films on Friday 6th December.
The buildings and urban spaces we inhabit daily play active roles in our lives and can feel oppressive, protective, hostile or even sublime. Film can give architects a more profound understanding of how architecture is experienced, and another perspective for both their theoretical and built work.
Good architecture, as good filmmaking, responds to the human condition in narrative form. Both encapsulate culture as the experience of space and time. Architecture Film Festival London brings together the key positions and preoccupations that straddle the border between architecture and filmmaking.
The Architecture Film Festival London was founded in 2015 by architect Charlotte Skene Catling and designer and producer Manuel Toledo Otaegui. The inaugural film competition received more than 150 submissions from 33 countries across the globe, competing for awards in four categories: Documentary Feature, Fiction Short, Experimental Short and “From Above”.
We are delighted to have the opportunity to present you with a selection of films from the festival at WAF this year.
Films will be shown in Crit Room 13 on Friday 6th December
